This is how I joined the diamonds to make a star:


To crochet the natural colored diamond around the star, you have to crochet the diamond till step 25, chain one, pull through, chain 2 and then while joining follow rest of the steps.
For the sides of the blanket I used half stars.
To make these you have to crochet half diamonds like this:

Now take a look at the whole blanket to see the lay out, so you know how to arrange the stars before 'sewing' them together


Now double crochet around the whole blanket en make tassels at the ends.
